1st Easter, success!

As you probably have figured out from the previous post we weren't home for Easter.  Luckily for Elle, the Easter bunny knew where to find her at the condo in Port Townsend! 

We sit Elle down after she woke up and let her figure out what all the hype was about.

Elle quickly manuevered around the loot in search of her first victim to attack...

The little smartie she is, she found the rubber duckie that was disguised as the Easter Bunny. 

I am pretty sure she giving the bunny a sloppy kiss as a big Thank you!

Over the ocean and thru the woods to Port Townsend we go

It was a rough day at sea for our little ferry. We watched the car in the upper deck sway back and forth as the owner didn't remember to set his parking brake.  It was a bit distrubing to say the least!  I tried to convince Colby to go up there and set it for them but he didn't think it was a good idea as I probably wouldn't have been able to bail him out until Monday since it was a holiday weekend...

Elle utilized this down time for a little snack. I think her leg was up trying to balance herself as the ferry was really rocking about.

All better!

A rainbow greeted us at Kingston!

We had two detours between Kingston and Port Townsend both were due to trees down over the road. One of the detours was onto the road "Egg and I". I wanted to stop and meet someone who lived on it in hopes they would invite me to stay there someday. 

This sign was about halfway down the Egg and I road, perfect for an Easter weekend! 

Seriously could there be any cuter of a sign!  I want to live on this road!!

Two for the price of one...

Elle had her big 9mth appt last week. As you can see she was very excited and woke up extra early for it!

Waiting for the Dr. was a lot of fun. The paper table cover suffered the most damage. We were very luckily Elle didn't notice the blood pressure cuff behind her.

Elle stats were pretty similar to her 6mth appt. Height is in the 70th percentile, head 80th percentile, and weight in the 50th percentile as well. The full report will come on her 9th month picture post, which I hope to have up before she turns 10 mths :)

Turns out this visit was a two for one as Elle had the start of her first ear infection. I told the Dr. I thought she wasn't feeling very well so he looked her all over and agreed she was getting an ear infection. I was so happy that he was able to see it and prescribe antibiotics as we were leaving for vacation two days later.

I forgot how much I love the smell of amoxicillin! Elle loved it the first night and kept reaching for more… Well, the next morning was a different story….

Note: it is 5:30am and my reflexes are not as good as they use to be! Moments after this picture was taken Elle decided she didn’t like the amoxicillin and proceeded to spit it on me as well as knock the whole (only one dose of the ten day doses) out of my hand and all over our beige carpet. Needless to say I did not make it to work that day. Colby was a trooper and pulled the carpet cleaning machine out of the garage and started to work at the big pink blob on the oh, so beige (picked when we were childless) carpet at 5:33am. Most of the bottle was empty so I had to call the Doctor’s office when they opened to have a new prescription sent in. I am pretty sure the nurse was saying rookie move, first time mom, rookie move!

Oh, I did get to sample my beloved amoxicillin and I don’t think it is as good as I remembered, sad.

Happy Easter From The Beach

Elle was preparing for today's Easter egg hunt.  She managed to find Mommy's basket from Grami and the big ball from Mommy.

We hope everyone has a great Easter and we have lots of updates once we find a more reliable internet connection.
